MARBLE, Louvina (nee HUDDLESTON)

It is with deep regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. C. H. Marble, who after a short illness at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Geo. Schricker, was taken to the St. Joseph hospital in Rice Lake, where she passed away Friday, May 14, 1937.  Mrs. Marble had not been in good health for some time, but her last illness and death came as a great shock to her host of friends and relatives.  The deceased had been a resident of this vicinity for 35 years and had a larger number of acquaintances in the county than most anyone now living here, and, with her wonderful memory concerning folks, could tell some incidents concerning each acquaintance.  Few, if any, who enjoyed her acquaintance but could tell of some act of "good neighborliness," she had shown them.

Louvina Huddleston was born in Washington, Ill., Dec. 1st, 1861.  She was married to C. H. Marble in Ponca, Nebraska, March 28th, 1882.  To this union four children were born, two of whom died in early childhood and two survive her.  They are H. E. Marble and Mrs. Geo. Schricker, both of this vicinity.  She is also survived by one step-daughter Mrs. Frank Hayden of Webster and six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Mr. and Mrs. Marble came to Wisconsin in 1902 and settled on a farm 2 1/2 miles north of Shell Lake where they resided until 1931 when they moved to Shell Lake where they resided until their demise.

The funeral services were held from the Shell Lake M. E. church Monday, May 17, at two o'clock.  Rev. Lockhart officiated.  Interment was in the Shell Lake cemetery by the side of her husband, C. H. Marble who preceded her in death, Sept. 30, 1936.  A large number of friends extend sympathy to the bereaved relatives.

MAUSHAMMER, Laurenz A.

Young Man Victim of Carbon Monoxide Gas on Monday

Laurenz A. Maushammer, 20, was the victim of carbon monoxide gas on Monday morning of this week, June 5, when he apparently was overcome by the deadly fumes in the garage at the Hugo Lorenz farm, southwest of this city.  The tragic death of this young man came as a sad shock to relatives and friends.

Maushammer was living with his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Hugo Lorenz, and on Monday evidently went into the garage where he started his car while the garage doors were closed.  It appears that he was listening to the radio when stricken by the fumes, for the car and radio were still running when his lifeless body was found by Mrs. Lorenz and son Hugo, when they returned from this city at about 10:30 that forenoon.  They summoned medical help at once, but all possible efforts to revive the youth proved of no avail.

Deceased was born in the town of Bashaw on April 14, 1919, and about a year later the family moved to St. Paul, where he lived until last February when he came to live at the Lorenz home in the town of Bashaw.

He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Maushammer of St. Paul, three brothers, Joseph of Racine and Robert and Alfred of St. Paul, four sisters, Mrs. Harry Bradley of Grand Forks, S. D., Mrs. Bert Iverson, Helen and Jesslyn Maushammer of St. Paul.

The remains were shipped to St. Paul where services will be held this Thursday, June 8, from St. Agnes church. Interment will be made at Calvery cemetery.
